One of the things I love about reading is being able to sink into a book and losing myself in the story and the world. Especially with some fantasy worlds I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to live there. And sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be the character. Luckily a lot of authors can let us sink into a character so we sort of live the adventure through the character.
For this week’s top ten tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) we are talking about characters we’d like to switch places with. Of course I made a list but I still struggled a little. As I have gotten older I have less interest in switching places with specific characters. I’d rather imagine myself in the world as myself or a form of myself. Even so I still managed to list a few.
Alice from Alice in Wonderland
I think everyone knowns Wonderland and Alice. Wonderland is so lovely whymsical. I’d love to see it with my own eyes as I fall down the rabbit hole. Would I make the same decisions?
Asha from Iskari
Look she gets to fight dragons and fly one. I need.
Lazloo from Strange the Dreamer
He gets to work in that library. I want that job.
Any demi-god at Camp Half-Blood from Percy Jackson
While they get attacked by monsters more than I can count the camp experience and seeing the super cool Annabeth would make all up for it. Maybe…
Any Ravenclaw Student at Hogwarts
Come on, you knew that was coming. I need to know how the Ravenclaw common room really looks like and I need to experience being a ravenclaw.
Tiffany Aching from the Tiffany Aching Discworld Arc
The things that Tiffany experiences in Discworld are some of the most fun things. And the way magic is seen is just something I would like to experience for myself.
